The Game's Afoot!

Ken Ludwig's comical murder-mystery is subtitled Holmes for the Holidays, and of course you're familiar with that consulting detective. Here's an actor (Jason Newman) playing an actor (William Gillette) who's playing Holmes and who's shot onstage in mid-role. Things get even more complicated (and dangerous) at a weekend revel after the attempted murder, and – well, thereby hangs a tale. A fine cast is directed by Don Toner for Austin Playhouse (now in their temporary digs at the Highland Mall). Dec. 13-Jan. 13. Thu.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 5pm. Highland Mall, 6001 Airport. $15-37 (student discounts available).

The Mutt-Cracker (Sweet!)

The Vortex and Circus Chickendog team up to present this trained-animal homage to Tchaikovsky's classic for the holidays. It's family-friendly, all right, but it's not just for the kiddies: These are antics that even grown-ups will be delighted by, as the talented Darren Peterson goes all out with juggling, unicycling, giant bubbles, rope tricks, and puppets – as abetted by his circus dogs and a performing macaw. Thu.-Sun., Dec. 27-30, 5:30 & 7pm; Thu.-Fri., Jan. 3-4, 7pm; Sat., Jan. 5, 5:30 & 7pm. $10-30 ($5-15, kids).

The Vortex, 2307 Manor Rd., 512/478-5282
